A Photo & Discussion Forum for Wharram Design Enthusiasts
Hello. Well I hit an immovable object with my tiki30 the other day. It did rip the port side forestay Ubolt right out of the bow stem. While inspecting the damage I noticed the wood was damp inside. Not really rotten but not a good thing. Repair s are underway and I chopped out damp wood and fitted a new stem piece all epoxied back in no big deal. I never hav liked the though bolted Ubolt Idea to connect the forestay to the stem. I’m considering drilling some proper holes and using a dyneema loop around though the holes as a connection point for the forestay bridle.Instead of the Ubolt. Any thoughts Ideas or information will be appreciated.
